This class will teach basic and intermediate acting skills for developing a variety of characters on stage, focusing on the archetypes: Heroes and Villains! Because creating believable characters on the stage is the objective of every actor, we first must delve into the work of understanding our particular roles on the stage. In the fantasy worlds of heroes and villains, it’s a fun and exciting task. We will also use our new skills to portray everyday antagonists/protagonists in selected dramatic/comedic scripts. All the while, we will be exploring the importance of fighting for our objectives on stage, overcoming conflict and perfecting the skills of powerful storytelling.
Lana is thrilled to be part of CYT and the amazing blessing that comes with introducing children and teenagers to the theatre. Her love of acting began when she was cast as Dorothy in her 5th grade production of The Wizard of Oz, and has never faded!
Lana spent much of her youth participating in acting and music workshops, being guided by wonderful singing coaches and excellent drama teachers along the way. As a young adult, Lana auditioned her way into many Bay Area community theatre productions, growing into expanding roles in both dramatic and musical/comedy productions. Her favorite roles are from shows that were created for young audiences, including playing Cinderella, Snow White and other characters from classic Fairy Tales.
Lana is delighted to bring years of experience to CYT. But mostly she is " thrilled to help your child realize their amazing potential and help them find their unique gifts... the theatre can be a beautiful place for a young actor's light to shine. " Lana is honored with the privilege of being a teacher for CYT.
A mom to an amazing 15 year old boy, Lana also works as a pediatric nurse at Stanford Children's Hospital. She has Bachelor Degrees in both Human Development and Nursing, and a Masters Degree in Psychology.
